Champions of death penalty fight to repeal it

3DAYFORECAST

Saturday night Low: 29 Record: 8 (2003) Sunset: 7:20 p.m.

PLACERVILLE, Calif. (NY Times) — The year was 1978, and the California ballot bristled with initiatives for everything from banning gay teachers to cracking down on indoor smoking. Both lost. But one, Proposition 7, sailed through: expanding the state’s death penalty law to make it among the toughest and most farreaching in the country. The campaign was run by Ron Briggs, today a farmer and Republican member of the El Dorado County Board of Supervisors. It was championed by his father, John V. Briggs, a state senator. And it was written by Donald J. Heller, a former prosecutor in the New York district attorney’s office who had moved to Sacramento. Thirty-four years later, another initiative is going on the California ballot, this time to repeal the death penalty and replace it with mandatory life without parole. And two of its biggest advocates are Ron Briggs and Heller, who are trying to reverse what they have come to view as one of the biggest mistakes of their lives. “At the time, we were of the impression that it would do swift justice, that it would get the criminals and murderers through the system quickly and apply them the death penalty,” Briggs, 54, “But it’s not working.”

LA JONQUERA, Spain (NY Times) — She had expected a job in a hotel. But when Valentina arrived here two months ago from Romania, the man who helped her get here — a man she had considered her boyfriend — made it clear that the job was on the side of the road. He threatened to beat her and to kill her children if she did not comply. And so she stood near a roundabout recently, her hair in a greasy ponytail, charging $40 for intercourse, $27 for oral sex. “For me, life is finished,” she said later that evening, tears running down her face. “I will never forget that I have done this.”

front-runner, Mitt Romney, characterizing the report as “weak and very troubling.” President Obama, for his part, acknowledged the “ups and downs” of the job market. While there have been some indications, like falling unemployment claims, that the job market was finding its footing, anxieties about whether a stronger pace of recovery could be sustained have been building in recent weeks.

La Jonquera used to be a quiet border town where truckers rested and the French came looking for a deal on hand-painted pottery and leather goods. But these days, prostitution is big business here, as it is elsewhere in Spain, where it is essentially legal. While the rest of Spain’s economy may be struggling, experts say that prostitution — almost all of it involving the ruthless trafficking of foreign women — is booming, exploding into public view in small towns and big cities. The police recently rescued a 19-year-old Romanian woman from traffickers who had tattooed on her wrist a bar code and the amount she still owed them: more than $2,500.

Russia denounces U.S. sentencing of arms dealer MOSCOW (NY Times) — Russia lashed out on Friday over the sentencing of a convicted Russian arms trafficker to 25 years in prison, calling the decision by a New York court “baseless and biased” and warning that it could hamper relations between Moscow and Washington. A Federal District Court judge in Manhattan sentenced the arms trafficker, Viktor Bout, on Thursday. Bout was convicted last fall of conspiring to kill Americans after trying to sell weapons to undercover American agents posing as members of the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia. “The American justice system, clearly carrying out a political order, ignored the arguments of lawyers and multiple appeals from different spheres made in the defense of this Russian citizen,” Russia’s Foreign Ministry said in a statement. Russia has vocally opposed every stage of Bout’s four-year legal drama, which began in March 2008 when agents from the Drug Enforcement Administration arrested him in Thailand.

North Conway voters approve new pumper truck BY TOM EASTMAN THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Voters at North Conway Water Precinct’s annual meeting last week approved raises for precinct employees, a new pumper truck for the fire department, and a bond article to upgrade the wastewater treatment plant. All articles on the warrant passed. The meeting was held at the John Fuller Elementary School in North Conway. Voters, with no discussion, approved an operating budget of $97,404, which as in the past two years, included a 45-cent-per-hour, across-the-board increase for the precinct’s non-union and union employees. Included among the total of 26 approved articles were three bond issues, including one — Article 14 — for a new pumper truck. That passed 39-5. The first of the bond articles was Article 2, which passed unanimously, 43-0. “I believe it was the first bond article to ever pass by unanimous approval,” said precinct superintendent David Bernier of the vote which took place during what was described by attendees as a straightforward meeting lasting two hours and 19 minutes. Article 2 was for $2.05 million to upgrade of the North Conway Water Precinct wastewater treatment plant to take on wastewater from the Conway Village Fire Department. Bernier after the meeting explained that because Conway Village Water District’s flow is approximately 38 percent of North Conway’s consumption, Conway Village Water District would pay 38 percent of the principal and interest.

“It’s a moving target. If their flow goes down in comparison to North Conway’s, that rate would go down and if it goes up, their their contribution would increase proportionately,” said Bernier. He said the project has already received a $625,000 loan forgiveness from the state revolving fund, representing a 30 percent loan forgiveness. “If the project runs under budget,” said Bernier, “we will still get the 30 percent.” He said the precinct will wait until Conway gets its funding for a $12 million grant-loan from Rural Development. “We would not need to make these improvements until Conway Village comes on board so we want to wait until they secure their funding,” said Bernier. He projected a two-year construction timeline before Conway would hook up. “The engineering [for North Conway’s improvements] is to be done in summer. The earliest any of this work could get done at our facility is probably late fall, but it is more likely to be the construction period next year when the work could be completed,” said Bernier, saying that Conway Village would need a two-year construction season to build a forced main and pump station once it obtains its funding before it can hook up to North Conway’s plant. Article 3 at the North Conway Water Precinct annual meeting passed, 43-1. It asked voters to raise $1.5 million to replace Well No. 2 that was damaged by Tropical Storm Irene in Saco River flooding last August. The third bond article was Article 14, which asked voters to raise

$585,000 and to withdraw that amount from the North Conway Fire Equipment Capital Reserve fund to purchase a new pumper truck for the replacement of Engine One, which is a 17-year-old International. It passed, 39-5. New truck downsized Fire chief Pat Preece provided a powerpoint overview of the need for the new truck, which he said is intended to serve the precinct for the next 20 years. He said a nine-member truck committee that included commissioner John Santuccio had reduced the proposed cost of the truck three times to come up with the third design which costs $585,000 — which is $10,000 less than the budgeted amount for replacement. Among the cost reductions achieved was dropping from a two-stage pump as the department currently has to a single-stage pump. “This will also reduce the cost of the long-term maintenance of the fire pump,” said Preece. The committee also went with a lesser cab, which lowered the cost while not compromising firefighter safety. Preece said the existing Engine One is the busiest engine in the department’s arsenal. “This engine runs on 75 percent of the fire calls, not including rescue calls other than car accidents. The engine runs on an average of 270 calls per year — this does not include training time. The current engine requires a lot of maintenance and costs the precinct a lot of money to maintain,” said Preece.

At a meeting of the commissioners in February, Preece said the department plans to sell the old engine. Proceeds would go into the precinct general fund. He said replacement of the old truck is consistent with the precinct and fire department’s truck replacement schedule, and noted that it originally had been scheduled for replacement in 2010. “We built a new building on Seavey Street, instead of replacing Engine One. At the time, we needed a new storage building more than a fire truck,” said Preece in his powerpoint presentation. He said the new truck will fit into the current fire station without any modifications to the building. Most other articles passed with little discussion. Heat improvements in stages An article that generated a few comments was Article 19, which approved $10,000 for installing heat at the Seavey Street garage. Although originally planned as a cold storage facility, commissioner Bob Porter at an earlier precinct meeting noted that the expansion committee is looking to move rescue apparatus and equipment to the building to free up space at the fire station. At that Feb. 15 meeting, superintendent Bernier stated that doing things in smaller increments and installing the heat “doesn’t mean you would utilize it until the move has been made,” according to the official minutes.

Tele-Talk What are the big issues for you on Conway voting day? Voting on town and school ballots is Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. at Conway Community Building in Center Conway. There are contested races for school board, selectman, budget committee and town moderator, along with some big issues on both ballots. Among the proposals and requests: $162,018 to start full-day kindergarten programs at Conway’s three elementary schools; $96,971 to continue with four teaching teams instead of three at the middle school; and $40,400 for an additional police officer. There are also some non-money items, including Articles 34-35 on the town ballot that would essentially reduce the budget committee’s role and make it an advisory board only. Tied to one of those articles, Article 34, is a proposal to review the town charter and consider changes to the town’s form of government. On the school side, there is a non-binding question asking voters if they support studying the educational and financial impacts of closing one of Conway three elementary schools. This week’s question is: What are the big issues for you on Conway voting day? Call 733-5822 Saturday and Sunday and leave your comments on our machine. You may fax your responses to 356-8360 or e-mail them to news@conwaydailysun.com. Comments can also be posted on The Conway Daily Sun’s Facebook page. Results will be published Tuesday.

NATIONAL PERSPECTIVE

The Political Battles You Cannot See SILVER SPRING, Md. — Five different political contests are being conducted right now. Only two are evident to the naked eye. The first of the visible contests pits Mitt Romney against Rick Santorum for the Republican presidential nomination. The results here in Maryland and in Wisconsin last week tell us who has a commanding lead there. The second visible contest pits Romney against President Barack Obama. That one began this month with their twin addresses to the convention of editors in Washington. Obama has a 4-point lead, according to a Gallup poll conducted last week for USA Today. Now to the three contests below the surface. One is being mounted by Romney to wrest control of convention delegates most people assumed were the property of Santorum and Newt Gingrich. This is a subterranean game Romney likely will eventually win, quietly, slowly — but decisively. The second contest barely beneath the surface is over the character of the GOP. It is part of the eternal struggle between populists and plutocrats. Don’t think of this as a proxy for Romney vs. Santorum no matter how many times the former senator goes bowling. This class struggle began before they arrived on the scene and will continue after their departure. It is the mirror of the struggle among Democrats between the circle around Franklin Roosevelt, rooted in the faculty offices of Harvard, and the Southern Democrats, rooted in county courthouses and in the kennels of the yellow dogs. The final contest is over the nature of conservatism. It may look like the struggle for control of the GOP, but it’s larger than that. Conservatism is a movement; the Republicans are a party. For many years they lived separate lives and may do so again. The struggle over the character of the party is fundamentally being conducted in the heart, the struggle over the nature of conservatism in the head. The week that the founding father of modern conservatism, Barry Goldwater, won the 1964 Republican presidential nomination, political scientist Andrew Hacker assessed the new movement — planted in the same soil that created John Kennedy’s New Frontier and Lyndon Johnson’s Great Society — this way: “The new conservatism is the result of the democratic process itself: the widening of new opportunities for millions of Americans who have risen to a better location in life and who at all costs want to ensure that they remain there.” That description now looks antiquarian. Modern Conservatism 2.0 — created in a world where Goldwater is a memory for all but a few, where his protege Ronald Reagan is a symbol but not an intimate presence, and where vast swaths of working Americans have a conservative impulse — has an economic component and a social component. It is chary of government involvement in the economy but open to government restrictions in social and cultural life. How wealthy a country this must be to afford, or to tolerate, five vital contests at once! But this is a time of economic privation and of political riches; not since the 1930s, when the economy was ailing and the Democrats were remaking themselves, did America have so many parallel contests. And during that period — indeed for much of the era

between 1916 and 1960 — the Republicans snoozed, putting up worthy candidates with formidable records (Charles Evans Hughes, Herbert Hoover, Thomas Dewey) but who did not stir the drink, nor roil the waters. Today, passions among Republicans run high — itself a great departure from the norm for almost a majority of Americans, who recall the GOP as a sleepy outpost of politicians who defined themselves by what they were against (the New Deal, mostly but not always fervently) and what they wanted to promote (prudence and thrift, mostly). When the Republicans of yore held a shootout, it was over the identity of their nominee, not over the ideology of their party. This was true even in the principal ideological struggle of the era, in 1952 between Sen. Robert A. Taft of Ohio and Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower. Eisenhower, without any discernible ideology, prevailed. Now the party is packed with passion, but not necessarily primed for resolution. Indeed, the emergence of Romney probably postpones the resolution of much of the Republican dispute. He personifies the managerial wing of the Republican Party, the strain that included Hoover, 1940 nominee Wendell Willkie, to some extent Dewey and certainly both Presidents Bush. But he is at best a convert to movement conservatism and, to some in that movement, a sheep in sheep’s clothing. Indeed, to conservatives he is reminiscent of Averell Harriman’s 1967 assessment of Maxwell Taylor: “He is a very handsome man, and a very impressive one,” Harriman said, “and he is always wrong.” Probably unfair to both men, but there are no points for fairness in war or politics. While the 2012 primaries and caucuses likely postponed the resolution of the battle over the character of the GOP, they intensified the conflict over the nature of conservatism, one that Reagan kept under the lid of the boiling pot but which began to spill over in 1988, scalding conservatives to this day. Santorum is one of the first Republican politicians to electrify both economic and social conservatives, but his hopes in the visible part of this campaign are dwindling. Santorum may in fact be conducting his last stand in his home state, which ordinarily would be an advantage but in this peculiar year may be peculiarly unfortunate for the onetime Pennsylvania senator, who was soundly defeated in his re-election battle six years ago. Santorum forces continually point to May for their breakout — the terrain there favors him and the issues will be in his wheelhouse — but his campaign may not endure that long, in part because of Romney’s diligence in one of the invisible contests, the process of peeling away delegates that look as if they are in the Santorum and Gingrich columns but in reality are not settled anywhere. There is a tropism to politics, and it favors the front-runner. Watch how Romney, who lost the Iowa caucuses in January by a handful of votes, will look like the triumphant conquerer of Iowa in August. The subterranean contests count. Some of them last decades. Some of them choose nominees. David M. Shribman is executive editor of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. He can be reached at dshribman@ post-gazette.com.

Republicans in process of dismantling NH To the editor: “I am sure that all of you have seen the headlines, “Gay marriage bill defeated in the New Hampshire House” or headlines to that effect. Now I would like to tell you the rest of the story as to how the House got there.” This was how Representative Karen Umberger (R) began her recent “Report from Concord” in The Conway Daily Sun. A promising start was followed with 800 words that described the parliamentary machinations of the House on its way to the defeat of HB 437. It was about as interesting and informative as reading a print out of the directions from a Map Quest search. There were lots of turns in the road but no description of what was seen along the way. I submit that Representative Umberger resists any attempt at anything more descriptive because it would not reflect well on her fellow Republicans. Or put another way, her compatriots are in the process of dismantling the State of New Hampshire as we know it in the name of God knows what so what is there to talk about that wouldn’t enrage most of the population, especially women. But don’t take my word for it. Google “Bill O’Brien, NH House of Representatives” or “NH Republicans” and be prepared to read some fairly depressing news. Folks, New Hampshire is the laughingstock of the nation! And

what is being gained by all of this? Little or nothing that benefits the State of New Hampshire. We are going backward quickly with an agenda that suits the cabal in Concord but not the citizens of this state. The Carroll County Delegation to the legislature is made up entirely of Republicans. Some of our Representatives have been around long enough to probably be mighty upset about what the new guard is doing but then there is party loyalty which stifles any overt criticism. Try this. Speak to or write your local reps and ask them “What is all this negative stuff I’m hearing about the Republican Party and House Speaker O’Brien?” and see what you get for an answer. Or “What’s this anti-female agenda all about ?” I’ll wager that you won’t get much of an answer but that is an answer in and of itself isn’t it. In decades past any criticism would be met with a hearty rebuttal, so silence or a timid answer sends a clear message of embarrassment or blatant disregard for the voters of this county. New Hampshire has a heritage of a citizen legislature that works across the aisle and in a bipartisan way to improve the education, safety, health, economic opportunities and environment of the state to the benefit of all its citizens. That heritage is being desecrated on a daily basis in Concord. Dick Pollock North Conway

Vote Tuesday to support full-day kindergarten

Correcting erroneous and exaggerated statements

To the editor: Hello, my name is Clay and I am a “Schoolie.” Before getting this label I was just a regular taxpaying American trying to raise a family and give my kids more than I had, like my grandparents did for their children. Tuesday we’ll have a chance to pass full-day kindergarten for all the children of SAU9. There are number of good reasons to vote yes on article 17, here are a few. • I work for the Community College System of New Hampshire, it’s well documented that 70 percent of N.H. High School graduates are coming to college and testing below college level in our math placement exam. It is also well documented that early intervention and more math in lower grades leads to greater math competency of high school graduates. Students who attend fullday kindergarten learn more in reading and math over the kindergarten year than those in half-day programs. (Lee, Burkam, Honigman, Meisels, 2002). This is after adjusting for learning differences associated with race/ethnicity, poverty status, fall achievement level, sex, class size etc. • Full-day kindergarten classes are more likely than half-day kindergarten classes to spend time every day on math (90 and 73 percent, respectively), social studies (30 and 18 percent, respectively),

To the editor: After reading a letter April 5 and an article April 4, written in the Conway Daily Sun by two prominent Conway residents pertaining to my actions, I find it necessary to correct these erroneous and exaggerated statements. First and foremost no one, least of all myself, ever recommended cutting the school budget by $11 million. Saying there were “negative repercussions” is correct, however those were due to the school board’s attempt to reinstate the entire amount of the true 11 percent recommended cut. Secondly how is saving taxpayers

and science (24 and 10 percent, respectively). •Kindergarten is cost effective, the price for tax payers in Conway is 12 cents per $1,000. We can make some of that back by taking care of early intervention on our campuses, reducing the amount of students who need to repeat grades. It has been demonstrated that full-day kindergarteners are more than twice as likely as half-day kindergarteners to reach grade levels without repeating a grade. Researchers calculated a savings of $2 million for every 1,000 kindergarteners in improved retention rates. (Viadero, 2002) • You want more involved teachers? Full-day kindergarten allows teachers to spend more time with students, individually and in small groups, and explore key concepts in depth. (Egertson, 2005; Martinez and Snider, 2001) Each kindergartener comes in with different abilities, and full-day kindergarten teachers have more time to asses students and individualize instruction to their needs We have a chance Tuesday to make SAU9 the best district in New Hampshire to raise a family, that’s good for our community, it’s good for our economy and it’s great for our kids. Let’s not be “Penny wise and pound foolish”! Get the vote out on Tuesday and support out schools! Clay Groves Conway

Thoughtful, informative appeal for restoring moderation To the editor: Warm thanks to Paul Chant (“Moderates Rise!” April 4) for his thoughtful, informative appeal for a restoration of moderation, decency and compassion in American politics. He rightly laments the departure from the public scene of people like Maine’s Senator Olympia Snow, who used common sense and their own individual judgment to make decisions that were good for New England and the nation at large, rather than following an inflexible political dogma.

Although Mr. Chant focused on the federal government and other states, he might just as well have been writing about the dogmatic extremism that has enveloped the New Hampshire legislature and a majority of the state’s (now all Republican) Executive Council since 2010. Voters have a crucial opportunity this fall to restore moderation, good judgment in Congress and here at home. Robert Gillette Ossipee

McLaughlin’s ‘Politics of Resentment’ amusing satire To the editor: Re: Tom McLaughlin’s column “Politics of Resentment”: This is a very amusing satire, Tom — almost Swiftian! I’m impressed. I’m particularly struck by your subtle wit: you allude to being “infected” with anti-English sentiment due to your Boston Irish upbringing, yet you scrupulously avoid mentioning the anti-black racism that comes as part of that package — an omission that cannot fail to alert intelligent readers to the fact that this is a satirical piece. Well done!

The title, too, is a brilliant stroke — taking the conservative code-phrase “politics of resentment” and using it to label an article which is a perfect example of such politics — the views of the stereotypical angry white male who can’t understand why those uppity black folks keep complaining, instead of just being glad they’re not slaves anymore. There is a wealth of comedy to be mined in this! I look forward to reading more of your dry humor. Thanks! Heather-Rose Ryan Intervale

Duprey was knowledgeable, dependable, compassionate To the editor: In regard to the letter from Dennis Duprey: My husband was a patient of Patti Durprey for several years. Patti was knowledgeable, dependable, compassionate, and always available when questions arose. She showed genuine interest and care and appointment times were never

rushed (ie. the 15 minute rule). The medical profession at Memorial Hospital could benefit greatly if the qualities that Patti possesses were allowed! To Dennis, thank you for presenting the accolades that Patti deserves. You are truly a dedicated husband. Patricia Jackson North Conway

dollars a “misguided act” utilizing methods being employed in cities and towns throughout this debt-ridden country? Least important is spelling my name incorrectly, this after serving with me in town government for years. Are these the people whose recommendations you want to follow? If you desire more accurate well thought out actions on all matters please consider voting for me as your selectman Tuesday. Bob Drinkhall Conway

Sous chef makes significant contribution to quality To the editor: An oft-used phrase which I endorse in almost every context is, “if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing well.” In this instance, the “something” I have in mind is the culinary arts program at Kennett High School’s Mount Washington Valley Career Technical Center. This program has been important and very valuable for many Kennett students, and we have every reason to believe that it should

continue to be important in the future. The presence of a sous chef makes a very significant contribution to the quality and impact of this program, and I urge anyone who is interested in preserving and enhancing the quality of the culinary arts program to support the effort to fund the sous chef position. Edward I. (Ed) Stevens, member Mount Washington Valley Career and Technical Center Advisory Board

Pleased to endorse Bob Drinkhall for selectman To the editor: We are pleased to endorse Bob Drinkhall for Selectman. Bob Drinkhall has been actively involved in the management of our town for many years. His concern is to make sure all of Conway’s facilities and departments are budgeted sensibly, without cutting necessary items and without overburdening the taxpayers. Bob’s experience as a successful busi-

nessman and a Conway board member on several committees over the years make him a right fit for the position. Bob’s concerns for all citizens, old and young, shows that he has no favorites and no secret agendas. To see Bob in action is to view what a professional selectman can be. We ask you to vote wisely, and to vote for Bob Drinkhall. Theresa Ann and James F. Gallagher Conway

Drinkhall’s focus is on keeping taxes as low as possible To the editor: I would like to respond to Dorthea Seybold’s letter to the editor on April 5. She has every right to support the candidate of her choice, but to degrade and misrepresent her candidate’s opponent is as disgusting as what the state and federal candidates do. I believe Bob Drinkhall’s focus is on keeping taxes as low as possible for the benefit of all, such as doing his own research on turning off street lights to save tax dollars which could be put towards other essential services or reducing taxes. If people want the street lights on,

why not band together to pay for those lights in their neighborhood which they feel are necessary. Our neighborhood did that and it wasn’t expensive. Cutting $11 million from the school budget would not be cost effective, however, it was 11 percent that was cut — a big difference. It is time the town of Conway comes together as a community and take into account what is best for all its citizens, the wealthy and all the rest of us in all matters. “United we stand, divided we fall.” Marcia Masters Conway

Thanks to all who supported my bid for election To the editor: To the residents of Effingham: I first want to thank everyone who supported me in my run for the selectman’s office in Effingham. I look forward with both excitement and anticipation towards serving the entire community. The entrance into any life of so much new responsibility carries with it significant chances to do either the right thing or the wrong thing. One’s character is not enough to ensure which side of that line decisions will fall. Information and knowledge on existing situations, a willingness to let other’s viewpoints affect

you, a pragmatic acceptance of the possible and thoughtful concern for the future must all share in the thoughts leading to a decision. I can only promise you that I’ll consistently bear these facts in mind as I both learn from and work with my coselectmen and the municipal office staff. I want to say again how honored I am to serve my community and promise to base my actions and decisions as selectman on a single criterion: is this the best that can be accomplished for the people of our town. Henry Spencer Effingham

LETTERS

Ed Butler’s letter on economic recovery is absurd

HB 1560 could have destructive impact on seniors

To the editor: Republicans are at least as responsible as Democrats for the country’s looming economic disaster. After all, they’ve long professed to believe that government confined to a few essential functions is not only a moral imperative, but a fiscal one as well, even as they’ve routinely failed to offer any real opposition to the Democrats’ unequivocal commitment to unlimited statism. Only recently, under the leadership of Congressman Paul Ryan, have Republicans in any number begun to acknowledge the need for immediate restoration of limited, Constitutional government if our social programs are to be saved for those who truly need them, and the country is to avoid a Greek-style economic collapse. While I was therefore incredulous when I read local Democrat Edward Butler’s March 21 claim that “thanks to the President’s bold actions … we’re building an economy that will last over the long term,” it was with little sense of superior virtue. Nonetheless, such flights into alternate universes can’t go unremarked. Mr. Butler is a decent and genial man. His letter is absurd. No need to take my word, or his, on the president’s contributions to the country’s economic peril. Merely look at Obama’s own budget, released last month: 1. It proposes the fourth consecutive $1 trillion plus deficit for next year. 2. It would spend $3.8 trillion next year, rising to $5.8 trillion by 2020. 3. It adds $6.4 trillion net debt by 2022 (more than doubling the average household’s share of federal debt

To the editor: The New Hampshire legislature is currently considering HB 1560 which, if implemented, would have a major and potentially destructive impact on health care for seniors. The New Hampshire State Committee on Aging is adamantly opposed to this bill. If passed in multiple states and accepted by Congress, HB 1560 would allow any state in a “compact” to take over Medicare and Medicaid through block grants, and to “...suspend by legislation the operation of all federal laws, rules, regulations and orders regarding health care...”. All protections and oversight for seniors under the current Medicare and Medicaid programs would be eliminated. New Hampshire’s state legislature could terminate any medical service or privatize them at additional cost to seniors. Proponents of this bill present it in very innocuous terms, suggesting that it would only lead to greater accountability and choice for health care, allowing our state to “explore” reforms to improve health care “…according to the judgment and discretion of each member state”. In fact, the bill offers absolutely no plan to administer and protect health care for seniors. Elders would be unwilling subjects in a social experiment not of their choosing, and the process would lead to manipulation of health care at the political whims of our state legislature. The larger result would fractionate health care among the states and result in a lack of standardization. Seniors who travel or move to other states would confront inconsistent health care access and confusing rules. Those who live in New Hampshire but receive medical care in a neighboring state could be denied the health care of choice due to conflicting state policies. Medical facilities like Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, who serve clients in different states, would have multiple non-uniform rule sets to follow. The idea that 50 individual states could

in 2009). 4. As the Associated Press put it, Obama’s budget leaves the disastrous growth in entitlement spending “largely unchecked,” and “takes a pass on reining in government growth.” 5. Therefore, according to Treasury Secretary Geithner, testifying just two days after Obama’s budget was released, it is “unsustainable.” I repeat: Obama’s own Treasury Secretary admitted that the President’s budget rests on “unsustainable” premises. This is an economy “that will last over the long term?” At the outset of his presidency, Mr. Obama promised to “cut the deficit in half ” by the end of his first term. Like his promise that, if his “stimulus” were passed, unemployment would fall — it passed, unemployment soared — Mr. Obama’s latest budget confirms the worthlessness of his promises, and the lunacy of Mr. Butler’s claim. Happily, of course,Mr. Obama’s infatuation with endless government growth will be spurned, by a good many Democrats as well as Republicans; national suicide is an unattractive option. I’ve long thought Carroll County voters would benefit were these matters to be aired in greater detail, and under more rigorous challenge, than letters to the editor allow. I’d be happy to meet Mr. Butler, or any other advocate of his views of Mr. Obama’s performance, in any public forum, for a data-driven discussion. Let’s see if they have the courage of their protestations. I welcome comments at ccnhgop@gmail.com. Maynard Thomson Freedom

Donor offers to match donations for the food pantry To the editor: Vaughan Community Service, Inc. has been given a challenge. An anonymous donor has offered to match donations up to $1,500 for the food pantry. If you are able to help, please send your donations to Vaughan Community Service, Inc., P.O. Box 401, North Conway, NH 03860, indicating “matching funds”. The volume of food being distributed this year is unprecedented. At this time of year families are often faced with the need to choose between paying for heat, or paying for food and

medicines. By providing the equivalent of two weeks’ worth of food, per month the food pantry is easing the burden on low-income families and individuals in the valley. As of this writing I have received $650 from the Rafferty’s Family and Restaurant toward this challenge, we thank them for their kind and generous donation. A big thanks to all who have donated in the past, and to those who are able to respond to this call. Denise Leighton, administrator Vaughan Community Service North Conway

Would writers ban offensive rants of Susan and Bill? To the editor: I had to chuckle while reading the two letters in a recent paper concerning a letter from Bill Catalucci. While I missed Bill C’s letter and do not know what it was about, I have to wonder if these same folks would go along with banning the offensive rants of Susan and Bill that are published weekly as Conway Daily Sun contributors? When it comes to offensive use of the English language, it is hard to top Susan. My wise old mother use to say, “It is not what you say but how you say it!” You can make you point without sounding like a sophomore in high school! Sorry, I guess I may have been

offensive to the sophomore class! I do apologize for that. Or, is there a possibility that Bill may be judged as a dreaded conservative (Catalucci, obviously, not Marvel, as Marvel and I have disagreed since his rants began in the “Reporter” many years ago), and the other two as just liberals? Just wondering about what is happening to free speech? On the note of Bill Marvel’s ongoing rants about the “wealthy,” does anyone have access to the old “Reporter” files? I think some of the recent rants sound like reprints of some of those from bygone editions! Jim Shuff Freedom

be more efficient at managing the complexities of health care than the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services is nonsensical. Paraphrasing the bill, it basically says to Congress “Give us $2.9 billion (yes, with a “B”!) per year plus inflation and we promise to do good things”. That is all it says. No plan is included and the fundamental questions of who would be responsible for developing, administering and overseeing a plan are not mentioned in the bill. If the Federal funding demanded is insufficient to set up and maintain the infrastructure and medical care, how would we avoid massive health care cuts? NH would face the devil’s choice – either increase taxes or cut medical services. Contrary to its supporters’ claims, there is absolutely no protection or accountability in this bill – it just says “Trust us.” Despite claims to the contrary, HB 1560 originates from political forces outside of New Hampshire. It is “model legislation” of the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), and is part of a nationwide ideological effort to derail well-established, well-run, and cost effective national health care programs like Medicare. HB 1560 is an ideological statement, not a basis for responsible policy. This bill is so outlandish that even some opponents of federal regulations and oversight recognize it as a waste of time. Yet the New Hampshire Legislature continues to pursue it. The State Committee on Aging is not a political organization and we do not lightly take strong positions on pending legislation. However, HB 1560 is so egregious and potentially dangerous to the future of senior health care in New Hampshire that we adamantly oppose the bill. Seniors should be aware of the threats to their health care and encourage their legislators to oppose HB 1560. Remember ... seniors vote! Russ Armstrong, Chair NH State Committee on Aging Dorothy Solomon, Past member of SCOA

Join in community conversation on money in politics To the editor: A recent ad from the Carroll County Democrats points out a troubling aspect of modern day politics: money. In the Federalist Papers, the Founders of this country described a Congress that should be “dependent on the People alone.” Dependent — meaning answerable to, relying upon, controlled by. Alone — meaning dependent upon nothing or no one else. Yet, recent years have seen greater and greater influence from, and dependence on, the huge amounts of money flowing from special interests to the legislators. It is fair to conclude that your vote is far outweighed by the influence of special interest money. A simple question to ask yourself is: Does my individual vote/voice matter to my legislator as much as the $10,000 he/she received from — take

your pick — the petroleum, banking, or the health care industry? It’s not even a matter of corruption, it’s all legal; and it’s not about Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party, liberal, libertarian, or conservative. The money flows to all, and drowns out your voice. There have been bipartisan attempts at a solution in the past, but the political climate is now making that effort almost impossible. I don’t know what the answer is, but I’ve been taking part in an ongoing discussion series on the subject at the Conway Library. The discussion is based upon Lawrence Lessig’s book, “Republic, Lost”, and will hopefully suggest some steps toward a solution. I encourage concerned citizens to join this important conversation.

Jeff Locke graces the Conway Town Report cover BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — Jeff Locke landed on the mound in Major League baseball last fall, and this spring “The Redstone Rocket” has landed on the cover of the Town of Conway’s annual town report. Three color photos of Locke, the son of Pam and Alan Locke, of Redstone, are featured on the town report, which was released Monday. There’s a picture of Locke throwing as a toddler in Cooperstown, N.Y.; a shot of him pitching for Kennett High; and the largest photo of Locke on the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates from last fall. “It looks beautiful,” Pam Locke said by phone Tuesday. “It really turned out very nice, we love it.” It’s the second year in row that a hometown athlete has graced the cover of the town report. Leanne Smith, the daughter of Paula and Joe Smith, a member of the U.S. Ski Team who competed at the 210 Winter Olympics, was featured racing in her USA colors. Locke, 24, landed in Indianapolis late Tuesday, it’s where he’ll begin the 2012 season with the Triple-A Pirates’ affiliate, the Indianapolis Indians. The Indi-

ans, who play in the International League, opened their season Friday on the road in Toledo against the Mud Hens (Triple-A affiliate of the Detroit Tigers), the first of seven games on the road to begin the campaign. The Indians are scheduled to play their home opener on April 13 when they host the Mud Hens. Locke will again be in the starting rotation and is expected to be one of the mainstays of the Indians’ rotation along with with his roommate Justin Wilson. Prior to leaving spring training in Bradenton, Fla., Locke made his final start there on Monday, pitching in an intrasquad game to stay on track to start one of the games this weekend in Toledo. He worked five sharp innings in which he struck out five; didn’t walk any; yielded just two hits and picked off both batters who reached first base. “He said he feels good and is ready for the season,” Pam Locke said. Locke said she visited her son for a week in Florida two weeks ago and was able to see him throw five more innings in a minor league game where his pitches were crisp once again.

Copies of the Conway Town Report are now avaialble throughout the area.

“When we were there we heard this guy talking about Jeff and saying how he had good composure and a good head on his shoulders,” she said, “I didn’t know who he was, but it was Roger Clemens.” Locke, the lone two-time New Hampshire Player of the Year, was called up Sept. 6 from Indianapolis, where he had a 2.22 ERA in five starts, opened the 2011 season in Double-A Altoona, where he was 7-8 with a 4.03 ERA while being eighth in the Eastern League in strikeouts. Although 0-3 in four starts with the Pirates, Locke impressed teammates and the coaching staff with his composure, competitiveness and willingness to pitch inside to challenge hitters. “I think he just stayed focused on making the next good pitch,’ Clint Hurdle, Pirates’ manager, said. “That part of it was good to see; there was no panic, there was no hurry. The takeaway was experience he’ll use in the future.” “It was a great experience and a lot of fun,” Locke said last fall, “and the biggest thing I learned from it is that you’ve got make pitches and get ahead in the count, especially against these guys in the big leagues.”

Sordi praised at last meeting BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The final meeting of this budget season for the Conway Municipal Budget Committee was a short one Wednesday night and it even ended with a round of applause. Voting on the town and school warrants as well as election of officers will take place this Tuesday at the Conway Community Building in Center Conway from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Budgeteers went through over 800 pages of material this budget season, and most agreed things went smoothly. “We have a few things to clean up before the next budget committee is called to order after the election,” outgoing chairman David Sordi, who was presiding over his final meeting, said with a smile. see BUDGETEERS page 21

Extreme weather: The ‘new normal’? BY DAYMOND STEER THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONCORD — Unusually big storms and freakishly warm weather happening around the country suggest that steps should be taken to address climate change, says a Concord-based environmental group that’s advocating for New Hampshire to remain in the multi-state Regional Greenhouse Gas Initiative (RGGI). But critics say RGGI is ineffective — or at worst is connected with an allegedly deceptive United Nations program called Agenda 21. Environment New Hampshire recently released a report called “In the Path of the Storm: Global Warming, Extreme Weather, and the Impacts of Weather-Related Disasters in the United States.” A summary of the report says since 2006 every New Hampshire county has been hit with at least one federally-declared weatherrelated disaster. Carroll County has been hit with six — including Tropical Storm Irene which caused major damage in Bartlett last August. “Millions of Granite staters have lived through extreme weather events causing extremely big problems for New Hampshire’s economy and our public safety,” said Jessica O’Hare, an advocate for Environment New Hampshire. “Given that global warming will likely fuel even more extreme weather, we need to cut dangerous pollution now.” O’Hare is registered as lobbyist for Environment New Hampshire at the N.H. Secretary of State’s Office. The Federal Emergency Management Agency declared other weather disasters in Carroll County on the following dates May 25, 2006; April 27, 2007; Aug. 11, 2008; Sept. 5, 2008; and Jan. 2, 2009, according to information from Environment New Hampshire. This past March was the warmest March on record in more than 25 states, according to Accuweather. Cameron Wake, a research associate professor at University of New Hampshire’s Complex Systems Research Center, said scientists are seeing record-breaking weather patterns over longer periods of time and over larger areas. March’s warm weather is one example of weather indicative of climate change, he said. “Extreme weather is the new normal,” said Wake. But some lawmakers are trying to repeal the RGGI program, which is designed reduce pollution emissions that fuel global warming, according to O’Hare. Environment New Hampshire gets most of its funding from small in-state donors. Those who oppose RGGI are funded by out-of-state fossil fuel interests, said O’Hare. Environment New Hampshire also wants the state to use more renewable sources of energy like solar, wind and geothermal. Environment New Hampshire is fighting against House Bill 1490, which would pull New Hampshire out of RGGI in 2015. RGGI is the cap on carbon emissions that was established by Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. RGGI took effect in 2009. see GLOBAL WARMING page 18

RGGI’s goal is to reduce CO2 emissions from the power sector by 10 percent by 2018. Participating states auction emissions allowances. Then, the money is used to fund energy efficiency and clean energy projects. Other states involved with RGGI are Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Rhode Island and Vermont. “New Hampshire has awarded $31 million in RGGI proceeds to 36 energy-efficiency projects and programs,” according to RGGI. org. Thirty of those projects are projected to reduce consumer energy costs by $60.6 million and avoid the emission of 220,000 tons of CO2. Still, HB 1490 passed the House of Representatives on a voice vote on March 28. Now HB 1490 is being looked at in a Senate committee. Last year, some lawmakers tried to repeal RGGI but Gov. John Lynch defeated them with a veto. State Senator Jeb Bradley (R-Wolfeboro) supported repeal but he also introduced an amendment he argued would have made the program more effective. That amendment failed. The failed amendment would have changed how energy-efficiency grant money is awarded, said Bradley. Bradley wanted to take the responsibility away from the gov-

ernment and give it to the utilities. According to Bradley, some grants had been awarded based on politics rather than need. As examples, he points to grants given to Stonyfield Yogurt and Dartmouth College. “If we’re going to have this program, let’s at least utilize the money in the most efficient way possible,” said Bradley. Prius-driving State Rep. David Babson (R-Ossipee) is also in favor of HB 1490. Babson says he believes RGGI money had been used to help big institutions instead of regular people. Bradley suspects Lynch will kill HB 1490 with a veto. Bradley doesn’t believe climate change science is “airtight.” However, Bradley says New Hampshire should have a wellrounded energy portfolio that should include renewable sources. But Wake, who helped evaluate the RGGI program with a group called Carbon Solutions New England, described RGGI as a “superb” investment. For every $1 spent, the return was about $4, he said. In full disclosure, Wake said Carbon Solutions New England was contracted by the Public Utility Commission — the same entity that made recommendations for how the RGGI money was to be awarded. Wake said the money given to Stonyfield and Dartmouth successfully reduced the see next page

amount of money those entities spent on fossil fuels. As a result, more money stayed in the American economy. The evaluation can be found on the Carbon Solutions New England’s website, carbonsolutionsne.org. Agenda 21 connection? Rep. Laurie Pettengill (R-Glen) is one of HB 1490’s sponsors. She also sponsored another bill to form a study committee to examine the implementation of United Nation’s Agenda 21. Her Agenda 21 bill, HB 1634, isn’t going anywhere soon because it has been deemed inexpedient to legislate. Pettengill didn’t respond to requests for comment. O’Hare wouldn’t comment on Agenda 21. Agenda 21 is described on Wikipedia as a “comprehensive blueprint of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the U.N., governments and major groups in every area in which humans directly affect the environment.” But while Agenda 21 is ostensibly aimed at promoting environmental sustainability, critics believe it’s an international power grab for the purpose of controlling resources. In January, Brookfield resident Ed Comeau gave a presentation about Agenda 21 to the Concerned Residents of Wakefield (C.R.O.W.). Comeau is a member of the Stafford Regional Planning Commission. He also films Carroll County commission meetings for Valley Vision and his website Governmentoversite. com. A recording of that C.R.O.W. meeting can also be found on his website. Comeau says Agenda 21 is about “changing consumption patterns” and “population control.” Comeau wants to inform the public that the U.N. is influencing policy decisions at the local level when it comes to topics like climate change. Agenda 21, according to Comeau, involves the U.N. taking control over land, sea, air and energy. Comeau explained the U.N. sets the policies and American presidents have used executive orders to have those policies implemented as federal mandates. Those mandates filter down to state and local governments and to non-governmental organizations. “Your federal highway dollars have stipulations that very effectively force states and municipalities to incorporate international planning principles into their projects,” said Comeau. But two other UNH professors say climate change really needs to be dealt with. They say it’s impossible to attribute specific weather events to man-made global warming, but the long-term trends show the climate is being altered. “The highly variable weather we’ve been experiencing over the last year and a half is exactly what climate models predict,” said professor Barry Rock who works in the Complex Systems Research Center. Such projections were being made about 20 years ago, said Wake. A major change in the climate has been an increase in brief storms that bring a lot of rain. These storms lead to erosion because the soil can’t absorb the rain as quickly as it comes down, said Rock who is concerned about how his home’s well will perform this summer. Scientists face a conundrum when discussing climate change, says New Hampshire state climatologist Mary Stampone who also works as an assistant professor at UNH. “If you don’t make it a big deal, people tend to blow you off,” said Stampone. “If you do, people tend to think you’re crazy.” The warm weather in March was due to a shift in the jet stream, which was believed to have been caused by melting of the polar ice caps, said Rock and Stampone. The jet stream also brought harsh cold to Europe. Making matters worse is the fact that bare land and open ocean absorb sunlight which causes the warming to accelerate. The ice had been reflecting sunlight back into outer space. The planet’s climate has fluctuated over time — after all, there have been multiple ice ages. However, today’s warming trend is happening more quickly than previous warming periods, according to Stampone who added about half of the warming that’s occurring today comes from natural sources.

Kennett tennis girls are a year wiser; open season at Laconia on Monday BY LLOYD JONES THE CONWAY DAILY SUN

CONWAY — The Kennett High girls tennis team was among the youngest in the state last year and will also probably hold that distinction again in Division II this season, but the Eagles are a year wiser, more experienced and are ready to go. There are just three seniors — Casey Blakely, Brittany Ainsworth and Italian exchange student Margherita Rossi — on the 20 girl roster with the bulk of the team featuring sophomores and freshman. The future looks bright, but head coach Deb Lemire, now in her second year at the helm, believes there will be plenty of bright moments this season. The Eagles open their 2012 regular season this Monday on the road at Laconia at 4 p.m. The Sachems, beat KHS in their first encounter in 2011, but by the end of the season when the two schools met again, Kennett prevailed in impressive fashion. “I can’t for the match,” Lemire said Friday afternoon prior to practice in Redstone. “I was working on plans for practice earlier today and wished we could have played Laconia today. I know the girls are eager and ready to play. ...I’m looking forward to gaging where we’re at.” Laconia will have already played three matches when it hosts Kennett on Monday. The Sachems (0-2), who were on the road against Pembroke Academy on Friday (results not known as of press time) for their third straight road contest, lost 8-1 against Coe-Brown Norwood Academy on Monday, and fell 7-0 against Hanover on Wednesday. Lemire has a new junior varsity coach this spring in Maxine Wolfe. “She’s been great,” Lemire said. “She comes into our program with lots of previous coaching knowledge.” The JV squad had five matches scheduled this season. The junior varsity girls will play their first match on April 18 when they host Plymouth at 5:30 p.m. The Eagles are slated to play the Bobcats twice this season along with a pair of matches with Fryeburg Academy and one against Hanover. The KHS varsity girls are scheduled to host Bishop Brady this Friday at 4 p.m. in their home-opener. “Bishop Brady is probably one of the better teams we’ll play this season,” Lemire said. “I hope the girls will go into that match and hold their heads up high.”

Brady has already played three matches and is off to a 1-2 start in divisional play. The Giants lost 5-4 at St. Thomas on Monday; won 8-1 at Plymouth on Wednesday; and were topped 5-4 at home by Hanover on Thursday. Lemire had been pleased with how the preseason has gone for her troops. “I’m definitely looking forward to this season,” she said. “The girls have all grown so much. They had the natural ability last season, but lacked the confidence in themselves because they were so young. I think they gained so much from playing against seniors and juniors last year.” The early spring has been a huge plus for the Eagles. “We’ve been outside pretty much since day one,” Lemire said. “It’s been so lovely to be able get everyone on the court. Last year, we didn’t actually get outside on a court until the day before our first match. I had girls who had never played before or played very little and they had one day on the court before they played a real opponent. This year, we’ve been outside, worked on so many different things, we’re ready.” Blakely, a four year starter for the Eagles, will again play No. 1 singles and doubles this year. “Casey is a fabulous player,” Lemire said. “I look forward to watching her this season. She’s got lots of experience and has been great with the younger players, working with them — she’s like having another coach on the court.” Lemire said the rest of the lineup is an everchanging work in progress. Sophomores Anna Mays and Erika Szekely are penciled in for No. 2 and 3 singles at the moment while Lida Dzhumayeva will play No. 4; Ainsworth at No. 5; and Rossi, who is coming off a seven-year tennis hiatus, at No. 6. A host of other players, including sophomore Tori Burns and freshmen Susie Dolan and deGrasse Shrader, are in the mix to help the squad this spring. “Tori has really been developing her game,” Lemire said. “She’s really come a long way and is becoming powerful player. “...The girls have been working hard,” she added. “I’m excited to see them perform. They’ve been putting in a lot of time, not just in practice, but on the weekends and during the off-season, this is a very committed group. I think the enthusiasm has always been there, but the girls are back this year with the same enthusiasm and now the confidence and skills to back it up.”

BUDGETEERS from page 14

The bulk of the 25-minute meeting was spent on approving seven sets of minutes from this past budget season. The minutes were approved with little fanfare. Turning to old business, budgeteer Ted Sares said he would like to see members attend as many meetings as possible in order to stay abreast of the facts. He said Rep. Karen Umberger thought crime was down for the police department when Sares contended it was up and police data indicated likewise. “Karen was talking through her teeth,” he said. “There’s stronger words for it but I won’t use them here.” Longtime budget committee member John Edgerton took some of his colleagues, although he didn’t name names, to task for some of their votes on the town and school budgets. “There are members of the budget committee who did not read the 800 pages we got to make sound decisions,” Edgerton said. “It’s my opinion, I won’t mention names, but there are people who don’t read the budget material, they only make emotional decisions.” Sordi disagreed with Edgerton. “I think everyone participated, some more than others, and everyone asked pertinent questions,” Sordi said. “I think that’s an unfair characterization. If people were trying to derail the process they wouldn’t have shown up to meetings and just PRECINCT from page three

Article 21, to raise $6,750 for the support of programs of the North Conway Outing Club, also prompted some discussion. Taxpayer Tim Anderson raised questions pertaining to the club’s liability insurance policy. A woman suffered a fatal injury when she slipped at the outdoor facility earlier this winter. Under Article 26, under “other business,” local canoe livery outfitter Peter Gagnon discussed the work of a committee comprised of local livery owners, precinct representatives and town engineer Paul DegliAngeli concerning proposals to improve the situation for canoe put-ins near First Bridge on the Saco River in North Conway. Those discussions are ongoing. Also under other business, precinct treasurer Maureen Westrick Forbes and Anderson renewed their questions about retiring precinct employees no longer being given health insurance benefits as do those who retired before 2008. Forbes-Westrick said she was “the perennial flower coming back for the third year in a row” to raise the issue. Commissioner Jim Umberger read a statement, in which he said, “We have consulted our attorney, Steve Judge, who has confirmed his opinion that the voters of the precinct have not authorized medical retirement benefits for any current employees. if the voters want to address this issue at a future meeting, there would need to be a detailed warrant article identifying all the costs and coverage.” Candidates unopposed In voting at the polls earlier in the day, all candidates ran as incumbents and were unopposed, including incumbent commissioner chair Robert Porter, who was re-elected to a three-year term. Also re-elected were treasurer, Westrick Forbes, one-year term; moderator, Rebecca J. Oleson, one-year term; supervisor of the checklist, Nancy France, threeyear term; and clerk, Karen Umberger, one-year term.

showed up to vote.” Sares agreed with Sordi. “I think we had a pretty good debate,” he said. “I think on balance we got what we needed.” Edgerton couldn’t let last year’s school budget go and criticized the school board for putting 11 percent back into the budget, while the state only allows 10 percent be returned by the legislative body. “I’m including ignorance in here not stupidity,” he said. School board member Dick Klement, the board’s representative to the budget committee, was puzzled by the comment. “I wonder if you could explain that in 25 words or less,” he said to Edgerton. Edgerton explained that the school board member (Janine McLauchlan, the board chairman and its representative to the budget committee last year) made a motion to restore 11 percent, which the budget committee had sought to trim last year and the school administrators and attorney knew the law that a maximum of 10 percent could be returned. “OK, now I hear what you’re talking about and I don’t want to hear anything else,” Klement replied. Edgerton also threw a jab at the current school board. He doesn’t believe the warrant article seeking funding to return the middle school to four instructional teams instead of three should have been handled by the board, not placed as a warrant article. “That’s a school board administrative decision,”

he said. “Kevin (Richard, principal of the Kennett Middle School) was real good when he came here and explained what’s in his school. I thought it was one of the best explanations we’ve gotten.” Betty Loynd agreed. “Kevin does an absolutely wonderful job,” she said. “He did everything under his power to try to maintain four teams. He lowered his budget from $4.2 million to $3.9 million, it’s incredible that it went down that much. It’s a crime that this is even an issue. He should be able to run his school as he sees fit.” Under new business, Sares wondered what was next for the budget committee. “How do we convene again,” he asked. “You’ll be gone and I regret that, you’ve done a super job.” Sordi explained that following the elections — there are four one-year terms on the budget committee opening up and only incumbents Maureen Seavey and Ray Shakir filed again — vice chairman Danielle Santuccio will contact everyone and call for a reorganization meeting. Sordi asked members to return their school and town budget binders to town hall or the SAU 9 office in order to recycle them for the next budget season. With business done, Sordi closed out the meeting, “Thank you all very much,” he said. “Good luck next year.” “David you’ve done an outstanding job, we’ll miss you,” Edgerton said. “Let’s give it up for Dave,” Sares added and led everyone in a round of applause.

DAVID EASTMAN

Country Ecology: American black duck During the first week of December, as I drove back from checking my Sandwich Post Office box, I viewed a flock of mallards doing their foraging “dabbling duck” routine in Littles Pond. They looked beautiful as migrating wild ducks can be while moving down from Canada. And, of course, I scanned their numbers for any black ducks present within them, and was delighted to see a pair keeping company in this mallard flock, but still keeping a polite distance. While they tilted down to go after the same bottom forage the more colorful mallard pairs were going after, they seemed to remain discretely over on their own side — seemingly being another class-mate, still not yet politically accepted. I wished I had my binoculars along to scan these waterfowl, but that was again something I am consistently guilty of — never keeping my treasured Nikon optics available. I had already parked the Toyota pick-up for observing the ducks from the parking area near the boat ramp fishermen have used for going after stocked brook trout.

things looked pretty good; the acidity of the lakes produced crystal clear lakewater. But it turned out that clean looking water had the consistency of vinegar. Here, the low pH ruined the calcium gathering characteristics of pond snails and crayfish. Later, it was evaluated that the calcium ingredients of their shells was disappearing faster than these aquatic crustaceans could produce it. They soon disappeared. This affected the black ducks obtaining their usual springtime pond prey, and they lost the ability to make eggs. The calcium needed was denied them by this invisible air pollution pulsing into their environment after snowmelt. Any time you nail an organism in its reproductive moment, there it goes... Those young that do result hatch in about 29 days. Shortly after hatching, the female will lead them to water. The ducklings will eat mosquito larvae and other aquatic invertebrates from the water’s surface for the first couple of weeks. As they get older, they will begin eating tadpoles and snails. Eventually, they will start dabbling under the surface for seeds, tubers and aquatic plants.

HIKING from page 23

Looking towards Mount Washington from the summit of Mount Eisenhower. (ED PARSONS PHOTO)

Ethan hacked it out of the forest up to Mount Clinton, then in and out of the stunted forest along the ridge to Mount Pleasant (Mount Eisenhower), and above the trees the rest of the way to the summit of Mount Washington. After 1840, after Ethan began to improve it as a bridle path, it might have looked a little more like the worn path of today. But few then ventured up the trail in the snowy seasons. I arrived at the trail parking lot off the Mount Clinton Road at 6:30 a.m. and headed out on the half mile Crawford Connector, soon reaching the Crawford Path. Surprisingly, it was icy enough to put MICROspikes on at the start of the hike. I wouldn’t take them off until I was well along the ridge past Mount Pierce, where the sun hit the rocks and it wasn’t worth keeping them on the rest of the way to the top of Eisenhower. But traction in the packed snow on the lower 3.1 miles of trail helped considerably, allowing me to quickly climb to the western viewpoints just before the junction with the Webster Cliff Trail, and just below the top of Mount Pierce. The sudden opening up of great space to the west, and seeing the line of high peaks to the north, is the gift a hiker gets reaching timberline in the southern Presidentials. I could see the rest of my route across the ridge to the round dome of Mount Eisenhower-- the obvious route, once taken by Abel and Ethan. There were snow patches on the southern slope of Eisenhower and some accumulation of snow on the summit cone of Mount Washington, behind it. I didn’t bother with a short side trip to Mount Pierce, and kept going on the Crawford Path. The next mile was a pleasurable ridge walk, with dips into stunted forest where there was packed snow on the trail, and rises onto dry ledge with vistas. Getting closer to the round dome of Mount Eisenhower, there was no point in keeping on MICROspikes and I put them in my pack. On the south slope of Mount Eisenhower, wind packed snow had accumulated in places in the dip of the trail, making walking a little awkward there, but it was gratifying to see that hikers who had recently gone before me had stuck to the trail, rather than walking out on the dry tundra, where sensitive alpine plants like Diapensia would be harmed by heavy boots. It got windy as I approached the top of Mount Eisenhower. It was nice to feel a touch of winter again. I reached the tall cairn on top, and briefly enjoyed the 360 degree view, especially north towards snowy Mount Washington. It was 9:15 a.m. I turned and headed back down the ridge. Hikers treasure the memories of their hikes, either done alone or with companions. Perhaps those who write about their experiences have found one way to let go of the memory to an extent, thus helping them return to the natural world as a blank disc.

by Lynn Johnston by Scott Adams

DILBERT

By Holiday Mathis SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Whatever you do, your instinct is to do it with style. This may take more money, time and effort than you originally wanted to give. However, you’ll go forward anyway and later be glad you did. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Beware of trying to manage your feelings. Trying to feel what you think you should feel isn’t going to work. When you let your true feelings flow and accept them, other impulses such as grace and love will emerge. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Your heart is not exactly overrun with joy, but it is pretty full, and you have much love to give. Certainly you’re better off than most. And you’ll be in just the generous mood to try to even things out by contributing all you can. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You may feel guilty for seeking happiness when there is so much need and pain in the world. But you owe it to the ones who are suffering to experience all the joy you possibly can. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). It’s been said that laugher is a form of exercise for your insides -- like jogging. Your sense of humor will be going strong, so share it. Everyone around you needs this kind of “workout.” TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (April 7). This year turns up your creativity and drive. By April’s end, a new project consumes your energy and gives back tenfold. You’ll have the attention of major players in May. In June, friends lead you to different work. A trip in October helps financial prospects. The most romantic months will be July and December. Gemini and Sagittarius people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 2, 34, 40 and 18.

by Darby Conley

ARIES (March 21-April 19). Sometimes it’s lonely at the top, but you don’t really mind because there is so much that’s enjoyable there. Besides, you’ve worked so hard to get where you are. You can always remedy the situation by reaching out to friends. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You can handle the truth -- almost any truth -when it’s presented in a non-emotional manner. It’s the feelings that make facts difficult to process sometimes. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You’re getting a certain reputation with yourself. What you think about you is the only opinion that really matters today, as any other opinions aren’t likely to affect you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Center yourself. If you don’t know how, it’s worth learning, because there’s much to gain from being in a solid place internally. For starters, you’ll be able to correctly assess your situation and make a winning play. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like money because it buys you the freedom to arrange your life the way you want it. Without funding, less is possible. Seek financial aid to broaden your horizons. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You feel ready to take things to the next level. Don’t try to convince another person to feel the same. Act like they already do feel the same, and it will just happen naturally. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You’ll feel better for getting something off of your chest. Whether it should go in your diary or you should actually tell the other person, well, that depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. Which way is most selfless?

Yesterday’s Answer


THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 7, 2012— Page 29

Today is Saturday, April 7, the 98th day of 2012. There are 268 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On April 7, 1922, the Teapot Dome scandal had its beginnings as Interior Secretary Albert B. Fall signed a secret deal to lease U.S. Navy petroleum reserves to his friends, oilmen Harry F. Sinclair and Edward L. Doheny. On this date: In 1788, an expedition led by Gen. Rufus Putnam established a settlement at present-day Marietta, Ohio. In 1798, the Mississippi Territory was created by an act of Congress, with Natchez as the capital. In 1862, Union forces led by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant defeated the Confederates at the Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee. In 1927, the image and voice of Commerce Secretary Herbert Hoover were transmitted live from Washington to New York in the first successful long-distance demonstration of television. In 1939, Italy invaded Albania, which was annexed less than a week later. In 1948, the World Health Organization was founded in Geneva. In 1953, the U.N. General Assembly elected Dag Hammarskjold (dahg HAWM’-ahr-shoold) of Sweden to be secretary-general. In 1962, nearly 1,200 Cuban exiles tried by Cuba for their roles in the failed Bay of Pigs invasion were convicted of treason. In 1969, the Supreme Court, in Stanley v. Georgia, unanimously struck down laws prohibiting private possession of obscene material. In 1972, mobster Joe Gallo was shot to death by rival gangsters during his 43rd birthday celebration at a New York City restaurant. In 1978, President Jimmy Carter announced he was deferring development of the neutron bomb, a high-radiation weapon. In 1983, space shuttle astronauts Story Musgrave and Don Peterson took the first U.S. space walk in almost a decade as they worked in the open cargo bay of Challenger for nearly four hours. One year ago: A man shot and killed 12 children at the Tasso da Silveira public school in Rio de Janeiro; the gunman, a onetime student at the school, shot himself after being cornered by police. Today’s Birthdays: Actor R.G. Armstrong is 95. Sitar player Ravi Shankar is 92. Actor James Garner is 84. Country singer Cal Smith is 80. Actor Wayne Rogers is 79. Media commentator Hodding Carter III is 77. Country singer Bobby Bare is 77. Rhythm-and-blues singer Charlie Thomas (The Drifters) is 75. California Gov. Jerry Brown is 74. Movie director Francis Ford Coppola is 73. TV personality David Frost is 73. Singer Patricia Bennett (The Chiffons) is 65. Singer John Oates is 63. Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels is 63. Singer Janis Ian is 61. Country musician John Dittrich is 61. Actor Jackie Chan is 58. College and Pro Football Hallof-Famer Tony Dorsett is 58. Actor Russell Crowe is 48. Christian/jazz singer Mark Kibble (Take 6) is 48. Actor Bill Bellamy is 47. Rock musician Dave “Yorkie” Palmer (Space) is 47. Former football player-turned-analyst Tiki Barber is 37. Actress Heather Burns is 37. Actor Kevin Alejandro (TV: “Southland”) is 36. Actor Conner Rayburn is 13.

DISCOVERY OF DAD’S SECRET LIFE CAN’T BE KEPT QUIET DEAR ABBY: I am a teenager who has recently discovered that my dad has been having sexually explicit conversations with women online for at least 10 years. He is usually withdrawn from the rest of the family, and I strongly suspect it’s because he cares more about his online fantasies than he does about his life with my brothers, my mother and me. I don’t know what to do. I can no longer look him in the eye. I don’t respect him; I pity him. I’m afraid to tell anyone in my family because of the drama it will cause, and don’t want to tell him because I know it will change our relationship. Still, I don’t think I can keep this to myself. I have considered seeing a therapist, but I don’t know how I can do that without giving my parents an explanation about why I’m going. What do you think I should do? -- CONFLICTED TEEN IN NEW YORK DEAR CONFLICTED: You have been exposed to a large dose of information you shouldn’t have, and for that you have my sympathy. If you feel you need to discuss this with a therapist, then you definitely should. As I see it, you have several options. The first would be to talk to a counselor at school and ask if counseling is available that way. If it isn’t, then tell your father you need it, and why. And if he refuses, tell your mother everything. DEAR ABBY: I’m a 23-year-old college junior, doublemajoring in English and education. Although I am pretty advanced in my degree field, I’m having second thoughts about my decision. Every day it seems as if I invest all my time and energy into something I don’t even want to be a part of.

I have a very adventurous spirit. I want to constantly be doing, going and discovering. Part of me says I’m an adult and I should ignore the explorer part of me. But it’s hard to say that change isn’t possible because we’re talking the rest of my life. How can I connect passion with occupation -- especially at this stage of the game? -- GYPSY SOUL DEAR GYPSY SOUL: By thinking out of the box. There are various options in the field of education, and one of them is teaching English in foreign countries. Start looking for opportunities in that area, and you may be able to also fulfill your urge for adventure. Another option that comes to mind would be joining the Peace Corps or Teach for America. Please consider what I am suggesting and do some research on your own. DEAR ABBY: Is it ever proper to wear your napkin tucked into your shirt collar when dining out, instead of placing it on your lap? Traditionally, a napkin is placed on the lap to prevent soiling of the clothing, I would guess. But some plussized folks and women with large bustlines don’t usually have food reach their laps, just their shirts. So what do you think? -- JUST WONDERING IN NEW JERSEY DEAR JUST WONDERING: Your napkin belongs in your lap when dining out, regardless of what size you are. According to Emily Post, “an exception can be made for the elderly or infirm.” So if you are neither of those, consider carrying a stain remover “pen” with you in case there is a slip twixt the fork and the lip.

THE CONWAY DAILY SUN, Saturday, April 7, 2012— Page 35

CHARLES GREENHALGH

Leadership, thought and Waldorf education As the shadow of winter is diminished by the light of spring, this year’s eighth grade class looks forward to its last days as students at White Mountain Waldorf School. I’m the parent of an eighth grader and I know most of the other eighth grade parents are looking forward to seeing our children move forward into a larger world, while wistfully looking back at the days our children have been nurtured at White Mountain Waldorf School. Many eighth grade students have been at White Mountain Waldorf School since they were in the early childhood program. As parents, we’ve devoted our time, money and labor to supporting our children in this journey. Now a part of each of us has to wonder, what has our commitment to Waldorf education brought to our children? Academic training and rigor, a nurturing environment and love of learning are all evident in these students. Yet, there is a deeper and more personal quality that our eighth grade has acquired through their Waldorf education. I’ve seen it in them, when they perform a song, or play a game or come together to accomplish some task. Until now, I knew it was there, but I couldn’t put my finger on what it was. This mysterious quality became clear to me when I read a lecture, delivered to the 2009 Plebe class of West Point, by William Deresiewicz, entitled Solitude and Leadership. The full text of the lecture can be found at http:// theamericanscholar.org/solitude-and-leadership/, I commend it to you. Deresiewicz is a writer and critic who taught at both Columbia and Yale. In his lecture, Deresiewicz is addressing a group he knows will comprise the future leaders of the United States Army. He notes that during his time at Yale, he sat on the admissions committee. In considering a student (who already had perfect grades and test scores) for admission, the committee would review the student’s “brag list” of extracurricular activities. see WALDORF page 41

Ossipee and Moultonborough classrooms receive 200 eastern brook trout eggs to raise In March, Ossipee and Moultonborough Central Schools each received 200 Eastern Brook Trout eggs to raise in their classrooms. Eggs were delivered to the classrooms of Maud Anderson (Moultonborough) and Carolyn Hemmingway (Ossipee) by Green Mountain Conservation Group’s (GMCG) youth coordinator Stephanie Doyle. These schools are participating in a program coordinated by Trout Unlimited and New Hampshire Fish & Game called Trout in the Classroom. Trout in the Classroom is a conservation-oriented environmental education program for elementary, middle, and high school students. Through the school year, students raise trout from eggs to fry and then release them into approved cold water streams and lakes. This act of raising, monitoring, and caring for young trout fosters a conservation ethic within participating students and promotes an understanding of their shared water resources. The eggs were picked up at the Powder Mill Hatchery in New Durham and then brought to their new homes in the tanks prepared by the students of the two schools. Setting up the tank is an important step for creating a happy healthy home for the eggs. This is the second year Moultonbor-

ough has participated in the program and they were able to set up their tank and chiller, donated to them last year by Trout Unlimited, and then assist Ossipee in the set up of their new tank and chiller. With funding from the MoosePlate Grant in 2011, Green Montain Conservation Group was able to donate the $800 chiller to Ossipee Central School which made it possible for the sixth grade to participate in this program. Green Mountain Conservation Group and Ossipee Sixth graders are very appreciative to N.H. Mooseplate for making this project possible. “The enthusiasm for this project expressed by the students was overwhelming! Students are excited, and prepared to serve as caretakers and observers of the trout eggs,” remarked Green MountainConservation Group’s Stephanie Doyle after she helped with the trout egg delivery. Students are responsible for the well being of the eggs. Responsibilities include carefully monitoring the temperature, pH, ammonia, and dissolved oxygen content in their aquariums, as well as removing dead eggs from the tank and observing the eggs development. see TROUT page 39

Christians Are in Crisis If you had to deliver a defense of your faith to the president of your country today, what would you say? As I pass through our community and examine the tenets of its community and its local churches, I see a common theme, the lack of an identity. We are a hungering, dying society. Our political candidates and the culture issue of this time is a mess. We as a society are degrading. The people are more willing to pass laws and create new technology, which is only a stop-gap measure, than to fix the root cause of our problems, though even that may not help. It seems as though the world has gone too far into the pit of destruction to reverse itself. Larry Ward, looking into the moral dysfunction of our world, stated “For the critical years just ahead, the answers are not found in the ‘hardware’ of computerized technology, but in the ‘software’ of compassionate concern.” Did he ever hit the nail on the head? Wow! What insight! What wisdom! Why are the common Christians of today in such a crisis? One reason might be: You have a hard time telling the difference between a believer and a non-believer. They look and act the same. Each has no separate identity. Why is that? Maybe its because our Christian leaders have stopped issuing calls to repentance, revival, and reformation. The common Christian and churches of today have given the people leavened bread to eat, and fer-

mented wine to drink, but commands the true Christians, “Do not prophesy judgment against us: give us smooth sayings.” According to the Bible, we ourselves cannot fix our worl, and ultimately it will be destroyed. But for the individual, there is still time and hope to reverse direction. In about 125 A. D., the Athenian philosopher Aristides delivered to Emperor Hadrian a defense of the faith which included this description of his fellow Christians: “They love one another. The widow’s needs are taken care of. The orphan is rescued from the person who does violence to him. He who has gives to him who has not, ungrudgingly and without boasting. If they find poverty in their midst, and they do not have spare food, they fast two or three days in order that the needy might be supplied with the bare necessities of life.” Would this be what you would have said? Do you see this type of Christian today? Not always. Yes, there are some, but not many. Where has Christianity gone the last 2,000 years? We live in a generation that seems to have an over abundance of material possessions, and yet we are still hungry for that special something which we have not been able to find. Have any of you ever been hungry for anything? Food, love, spiritual enlighten, money, drugs, you name it. Let me tell you one thing: hunger has a face. I know. I have looked hunger square in the face. Every day, I see individuals who lack life, and

are easily forgotten. It’s also the face of a nomad refuge who sits in a camp of goatskin tents, howling for food, calling the names of his favorite items. Even when he realizes they are dead and of no value to him, he still cries for them. Today we mostly live just for today, doing what we think a proud American would never do — begging for more to stay alive. What can we as residents of the United States, whose “garbage” is the richest in the world, do to change this great crisis? What will it take for us to admit our self-centered, wicked, unholy tendencies? Do we have to suffer humiliation or destruction before we repent or turn course? Do we have to come face-to-face with our own death before we say, “God, forgive me.” As you examine your own self in the mirror of life, ask yourself this question: “What is my self-interest?” We, as a country and a people, “have been weighed in the balance, and found wanting,” by God because of our transgressions. God will not turn away his judgment. I know I have felt overwhelmed by the magnitude of the world hunger/nutrition crises. But I also have to remember: people die one at a time. Since this is true, we can only help them one at a time. What are you doing to help? Brian Schimp lives in Conway and is pastor of Seventh-Day Adventist Church in Berlin.

St. Andrew’s to present murder mystery dinner TAMWORTH — The mouth-watering aroma of home-cooked pasta is in the air, wafting up from one Tamworth’s most popular eateries, the Italian bistro La Sperenza. But somethingelse is heating up in the kitchen ... cold-blooded murder! The restaurant’s owner, Pepi Roni, has been shot in the back with his own gun. Family and friends will gather to pay their respects to poor Pepi, but one of the guests won’t be shedding any tears. A pistol and passion, mixed with pasta ... who could resist? Come to St. Andrew’s Italian Murder Mystery Dinner on Friday, April 27, and discover exactly who done in the dearly departed Pepi, as you dine on an Italian feast, courtesy of the co-conspirators in the kitchen at St. Andrew’s/La Sperenza. Admission is $15. Reservations will be accepted for parties of four or more — call the church office at 323-8515. Feasting and festivities began at 6 p.m. sharp, with the murder mystery is scheduled to unfold during the dinner. Fifty percent of all funds raised through the Italian Mystery Dinner go to organizations that provide help to others in the local community and around the world, including these three: the Tamworth Community Food Center, Ossipee Concerned Citizens (for Meals on Wheels), and Starting Point. For more information about the event or to make table reservations, call St. Andrew’s offices at 323-8515.

Comes in ALL Shapes and Sizes. However . . . there is only one REAL HOPE … His name is

Jesus

Join us this Easter for vibrant worship and fellowships as we celebrate His sacrifice and resurrection... and the eternal hope that He alone gives.

TROUT from page 35

Later this spring when the eggs hatch, the students will release the fingerlings into a local stream which GMCG monitors year-round. The stream must also be approved by NH Fish & Game as a release site. Sites must exhibit cool temperatures, high levels of dissolved oxygen, low turbidity, and gravelly substrate in order to sustain brook trout. Students from Ossipee and Moultonborough will have the opportunity to communicate with each other through a blog created as part of the Youth Coalition.

Library hosts Easter egg hunt today From the selectmen’s office: It was announced at this week’s meeting that the spring weight limits on our roads have been lifted. It was also announced that applications for camp Marist scholarships are available at the town offices, the library and the school. Application must be handed in to the town offices soon. News from our school: Kindergarten registration will be held next week, Friday, April 13 at 1 p.m. Parents of children who will be 5 years old by Sept. 30, are asked to call the school secretary at 539-6032 to make an appointment. Also, the students have begun a composting project utilizing fruit and vegetable matter. The resulting compost will be used in their gardens. The composting bin to be used by the students was donated by a staff member: thanks whoever you are. And finally; many of those calories consumed by students rather than composted will be burned off by the Running Rascals club as they train for an upcoming 5K race in May. Currently this group of athletes has increased their practice from 1/2 mile to 2 1/2 miles per practice. Keep it up. The big party: Last Saturday found almost 150 people at Par Sem to honor the Patriarch of Taylor City on his 90th birthday. It has been reported that even with more than one person per year of Mr. Taylor’s life knowing about the party and showing up not a single person revealed the secret to the guest of honor. Consequently it was an actual surprise party. The secret here of getting 150 people to show up at your birthday party may be staying in one place for most of your life, so far, and talking to everyone who comes within hailing distance and treating them as a friend or at least

someone worth knowing. Many happy returns of the day Mr. Mayor. From the library: On Saturday, April 7, the library will host its annual Easter Egg Hunt for children up through grade 6. The morning will start with story time and progress into the making an Easter basket in which attendees can collect the hidden eggs and candies hidden around the library. Light refreshments will be available afterwards. Come join in the fun. Call the library at 539-1537 for more information, or email marilyn@effingham.lib.nh.us A while back members of the community gathered together to explore the possibility and requirements for establishing a “wildlife management plan.” Representatives from the New Hampshire Coverts Program, and Carroll County Co-operative and the Effingham Conservation Commission were on hand to look over maps with the gathered public, discuss habitat types and to identify particular areas of interest within Effingham. Should you be interested in in the concept of managing lands for wildlife you can go to takingactionforwildlife.org. Early announcement: April 28 has been set for this spring’s roadside clean up. More on this later as your reporter tries to find yet another way to convince new people to show up. Penciling it in your daily planner right now will ensure you do not double book the day. Experience has shown spending the morning with others doing something as simple as picking up a little litter allows one to feel good about one’s self for at least two months, maybe three if you get your feet wet while doing it.

Library joins Drake’s Corner Literary Society EFFINGHAM — The Effingham Public Library has announced the formation of the Drake’s Corner Literary Society. The society was created as a forum for lovers of literature. The name Drake’s Corner was chosen as a tribute to the history of the area of Center Effingham where the library is located. Drake’s Corner was one of several vibrant communities within Effingham back in the days of the horse and carriage. The society will provide a forum for participants to recommend works of literature that they have enjoyed. These works can be in either print, audio, or video format.

Participants will be asked to give reasons for recommending a particular work, as well as a 50-100 word annotation. These annotations will be added to our online catalog as reference for library users. As time allows, there will be discussion and a question and answer period. The public is invited to participate. The society will meet on the third Friday of each month at 12:30 p.m. at the Effingham Public Library, 30 Town House Road. The next meeting will be April 20. Coffee and tea are available. All are welcome to bring a light lunch or snack. For more information call the library at 539-1537, or email gary@effingham.lib.nh.us.

A Course in Miracles at the center April 12 The year 1972 was my first Easter in the valley. My brother and I had joined Eastern Slope Ski School classes on Tuesday afternoons at Mount Cranmore. The awards ceremonies for the end of the year races were held on Maundy Thursday. We missed the ceremonies because there was a combined church service that night. David and I weren’t real happy about it, but the service was held at the Methodist Church in Conway, and we had entertainment after all. The church’s heating system was hot air blown through floor vents in the aisle. As the choir members walked in to the church, their robes all billowed out when they walked over the vents. There was a lot of snow that year. My parents have a slide of my brother standing at the end of the drive way, with the snow piled at twice his height. The ecumenical sunrise service was held at Black Mountain. The skiers met at the top of the mountain. When the sun hit the top of the mountain the skiers skied down. My dad was asked to provide the music for the service at the base of the mountain. It was cold, he could not feel the strings of the guitar, and at that temperature it quickly went out of tune. People didn’t seem to mind, it was just nice to be able to sing the joy of the day. It is interesting how in time events come full circle. This year I will be playing the guitar at my in-laws sunrise service in Bangor. Happy Easter everyone.

Eco-forum on community benefits of land conservation on April 12 ALBANY — A panel of Upper Saco Valley Land Trust members will provide an overview of conservation easements, how landowners can better manage property for wildlife, as well as introduce the organization’s new natural resources inventory. Tin Mountain’s monthly eco-forum series will explore the Community Benefits of Land Conservation on Thursday, April 12, from noon to 1 p.m. The Upper Saco Valley Land Trust (USVLT) is a non-profit organization with an eleven-town project area stretching from Hart’s Location to Denmark, Maine. For the April EcoForum, USVLT will present a primer on how land conservation is key to the ecological health of our region. Executive Director William Abbott, President Tom Earle, and board member Doug Burnell will explore the roles

the land trust movement and conservation easements play in helping individual landowners and communities preserve vital natural resources. To date, USVLT has protected over 5,200 acres, including 35 conservation easements. Land trusts nationwide have conserved 37 million acres, an area roughly the size of New England. The eco-forum lunchtime lecture series is sponsored by The Flatbread Company of North Conway, Rock House Mountain Baker, and Frontside Grind. It is presented at noon on the second Thursday of each month at the Tin Mountain Nature Learning Center in Albany. The public is urged to attend to learn more about salient issues facing our natural environment and to hear the views of thought-provoking speakers.

REAL ESTATE CORNER

HOME OF THE WEEK

Trust Your Gut BY JASON ROBIE It’s like asking a painter if he thinks you should change the color of your interior walls. Or, better yet, asking the unscrupulous car salesman if the vehicle you are test-driving would be a good purchase. I’m not saying you won’t get an honest answer, but in any situation you should use your own instincts and intuition and make the decision for yourself. Of course, another great idea is to solicit input from an impartial third party. There are numerous times in life in which we’re provided information and are left to determine the value of the data on our own. Some of these decisions are life changing. The choice to sell or stay, the choice to buy or rent, even the choice to keep dating or pop “the question” are all game changers and should be made with thoughtful consideration and not necessarily outside influence. I find this to be true when it comes to the constant stream of data we receive from those involved in real estate. Make no mistake about it, I understand that present company is included in this equaJason Robie tion and people in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones. My encouragement to you is to simply take what you read with a grain of salt and take that extra step to filter the data stream through your own situation. One of the more amusing things I find when reading industry blogs, articles and magazines is the incredible inconsistency of the message. If you have been reading along with me over the past few months you know that the pattern has not changed. I have lost count of the number of days we find articles in support of buying real estate and articles warning us of impending foreclosures and falling prices. There is truly no wonder people have a diminished sense of trust with real estate professionals. The real crime here is in throwing the baby out with the bathwater. It is no secret that the lifeblood of the real estate industry is the sale of properties. If nobody buys real estate, nobody in real estate makes a living. This is not just limited to sales agents and brokers, but also directly impacts appraisers, inspectors, lending institutions, attorneys and more. But something I learned a long time ago is that integrity, customer service and a good reputation far outweigh the benefits of any sale. While we laud the benefits of the current incredible interest rates, increased inventory and numerous aggressively priced homes, those need to be balanced with your own personal needs and current financial situation. Your own personal situation is the single most important factor in how you interpret the constant flow of data you are presented. There are broad, blanket statements made on a daily basis about the real estate market. And this is nothing new. For as long as there have been media outlets, there have been broad statements made about any number of financial, social, economic or even athletic topics. I was taken aback, in reading the Boston Globe last week, that none of their staff writers picked the Red Sox to finish the season in better than see ROBIE page 46

third place. While initially this was a little surprising, it occurred to me that they had all utilized their extensive experience combined with what they saw in spring training to establish an informed assessment of the team’s chances. While it may have looked a little “off” to have such a pessimistic view of the season, I quickly realized it was simply realistic. We need to take the same perspective when filtering the constant din of stories and articles about the real estate market. One of the first things you learn, when you start dabbling in real estate, is it is an extremely local market. Almost nothing you read or hear on a national level will directly relate to your own neighborhood. My parents live in a town in Florida that is seeing sales of 250 homes a month. They live in a town that sees almost 400 homes built every month and enjoys a constant flow of people looking forward to starting their retirement in this small area of the state. This certainly puts the national news stories in perspective. We enjoy the same sort of environment here in the Mount Washington Valley, though not nearly to that scale. We are fortunate to have a strong second-home market and a very desirable place to call home. And we’re not alone. Just this week, in a story from CNBC, we learned that homes in Midland, Texas take an average of 71 days to sell and are only 1 percent discounted from the original list price (on average). That’s a healthy seller’s market to say the least. In fact, the gist of the whole story was highlighting towns across the country that are enjoying quick sales, minimum discounts and an overall healthy market. I love that real estate is on everyone’s mind. We are fortunate that the industry we are in is a topic of conversation from the board room to the bar room. It is an easy topic to bring up in conversation and many of us in the industry can’t go buy a gallon of milk without a friendly face bringing it up. My caution and our recommendation for you is to simply filter what you hear and read with the lens of your specific town or area. There is a good chance the truth is in there somewhere; the onus is on you to find it! Jason Robie is staff writer for Badger Realty in North Conway. Phone number is (603) 356-5757.

Pending home sales ease in February but still higher than a year ago WASHINGTON — Pending home sales were down slightly in February but remain notably above the pattern in the first half of last year, according to the National Association of Realtors. The Pending Home Sales Index, a forward-looking indicator based on contract signings, eased 0.5 percent to 96.5 in February from 97.0 in January but is 9.2 percent above February 2011 when it was 88.4. The data reflects contracts but not closings. Lawrence Yun, chief economist for National Association of Realtors, said we’re seeing the continuation of an uneven but higher sales pattern. “The spring home buying season looks bright because of an elevated level of contract offers so far this year,” he said. “If activity is sustained near present levels, existing-home sales will see their best per-

formance in five years. Based on all of the factors in the current market, that’s what we’re expecting with sales rising 7 to 10 percent in 2012.” The PHSI in the Northeast slipped 0.6 percent to 77.7 in February but is 18.4 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index jumped 6.5 percent to 93.8 and is 19.0 percent higher than February 2011. Pending home sales in the South fell 3.0 percent to an index of 105.8 in February but are 7.8 percent above a year ago. In the West the index declined 2.6 percent in February to 99.3 and is 1.8 percent below February 2011. The National Association of Realtors is America’s largest trade association, representing one million members involved in all aspects of the residential and commercial real estate industries.

Resident-owned communities are catching on BY CRAIG WELCH People from more than 5,600 New Hampshire households, most of them low-income, have created affordable housing for themselves. Quite an accomplishment, wouldn’t you say? The strategy they’ve used takes courage, faith in the future, and faith in themselves. It results in housing that is stable and safe, and that helps them save money and build assets. It also results in improved neighborhoods and greater civic participation. And it generates property tax dollars for each of the 64 N.H. towns and cities where it is located. They’re called resident-owned manufactured-housing communities, and last month, a community in Derry became New Hampshire’s 100th. Resident-owned communities are sprinkled around Carroll County: Ossipee Mountains Estates Cooperative in Center Ossipee, North Country Village Cooperative in Center Tuftonboro, Sandy Ridge Estates Cooperative in Ossipee, Tamworth Pines Cooperative in West Ossipee and The Birches of Wolfeboro Cooperative in Wolfeboro. Meredith Center Cooperative was the first, in 1984. The elderly owners of a 13-home trailer park needed to sell it because they couldn’t keep up with the maintenance. At the time, real estate prices near Lake Winnipesaukee were sky-high as land was snapped up for condos and vacation homes. The park’s long-time residents knew exactly what would happen if it was sold. “Most of us just figured we’d be thrown out, so we

were looking for solutions — moving, buying something else, renting somewhere, just hanging in and hoping for the best,” one resident told a reporter. A couple of residents looked into buying the park themselves, but they didn’t have the personal credit, or down payment, for a loan. Remembering there’s strength in numbers, they organized the other residents into a cooperative and approached the banks as a group. The banks still weren’t persuaded. Three said they wouldn’t lend to a cooperative. Two said that even as a cooperative, the families didn’t have sufficient credit. Then there was the group’s total lack of management experience, low incomes, and a leaky septic system that needed costly repairs. Few lenders thought that a newly formed group of volunteers could manage such

Attractively Upgraded

an enterprise without bankrupting it. But over the past 27 years, they’ve proven otherwise. The Meredith group had been assisted by a graduate student who needed a community development project to complete her master’s degree. Her professors connected her with a brandnew organization, the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund. The Community Loan Fund connected with the Sisters of Mercy, who wanted to put the money in their retirement fund to use for a good purpose. This project was the perfect fit. The Meredith families had the purpose. The Sisters had the money. And the Community Loan Fund figured out how to get the deal done. It would be 2½ years before the next park in N.H. converted to resident ownership, but then the idea concept exploded. Thirty-five parks converted in the next 10 years, and 46 in the decade after that. In 27 years, not one of these communities has failed. Not one has been sold back to an outside company or investor. Through the years, trailers evolved into mobile homes, which became today’s not-so-mobile manufactured homes. Today’s manufactured homes are built in factories to federal standards, are set on pads and foundations that are built to last, and cost very little to live in. These quality homes have become an important source of housing for young families, downsiz-

ing seniors and families with low incomes. In many rural communities where rental apartments are scarce, manufactured homes are the best, and often the only, affordable housing. Although some resident cooperatives buy their communities to avoid displacement, as did the Meredith residents, most want control the fees they pay to rent their lots (most residents in manufactured housing parks own their homes, but rent the land beneath them). Some also want to repair aging roads, electric or water systems. The residents of Foxy Terrace Cooperative in Derry worked for five years, through false starts and disappointments, to buy their community. It was worth it, says president Russell Brooks. Now, the residents will pay rent to themselves. “We can actually put the money into making it a better community — a community everybody wants to be proud to live in,” Brooks said. That pride is on display at co-ops’ community cleanup days, and in their community gardens. Committees plan dances, cookouts, night sledding and pumpkin-carvings. Others look in regularly on elderly neighbors to be sure they’re cared for. When Medvil Cooperative in Goffstown counted the number of volunteer hours its members had contributed in 2010, the answer was stunning: 50,000. The largest of the resident-owned communities are multi-million-dollar see next page

enterprises, but they are run democratically by elected boards of directors and annual member meetings. Several graduates of the Community Loan Fund’s “boot camp” for new co-ops and/or annual leadership training have since been elected or appointed to serve in their town’s government. One hundred co-ops isn’t just an achievement for the proud residents of these parks — it offers a lesson to all of us: When people have the right tools (fair loans, training and technical assistance) at the right time, they can take control of their lives and change the course of their lives. Land renters become owners. Residents become leaders. And neighborhoods become communities, in the best senses of the word. Craig Welch is vice president for housing at the New Hampshire Community Loan Fund.

101 metropolitan markets are showing improvement The list of housing markets showing measurable improvement expanded slightly to include 101 metropolitan areas in April, according to the National Association of Home Builders/First American Improving Markets Index (IMI), released this week. Thirty-five states (including the District of Columbia) are now represented by at least one market on the list. The index identifies metropolitan areas that have shown improvement from their respective troughs in housing permits, employment and house prices for at least six consecutive months. The 101 markets on the April IMI represent a net gain of two from March, with 13 metros being added and 11 markets slipping from the list while 88 markets retained their places on it. Among the new entrants, areas as diverse as Rome, Ga.; Coeur d’Alene, Idaho; Greenville, N.C.; Brownsville, Texas; St. George, Utah; and Huntington, W.Va., are now represented on the IMI. “While housing markets across the country continue to struggle under the weight of overly tight lending conditions and other challenges, the April IMI indicates that at least 101 individual metros are showing measurable and consistent signs that they are headed in the right direction,” said National Association of Home Builders’ chairman Barry Rutenberg. “A total of 35 states are now represented on the list, with 10 states having four or more entries. This positive news is in line with what our builder members have observed regarding firming conditions and improved buyer interest in certain locations.”

MARKETS from page 49

“After five consecutive months of gains, the IMI recently began to plateau, with many markets holding steady and a few experiencing the ups-and-downs that are typical in a choppy recovery,” observed association chief economist David Crowe. “The IMI is designed to highlight markets that are showing consistent improvement, and those markets that have registered the smallest gains are more susceptible to dropping off the list due to a minor setback in prices, permits or employment,” he explained. At the same time, “as stronger markets approach stability, it will get harder for them to keep charting improvement, which will also limit the expansion of the IMI.” “The fact that the number and geographic distribution of improving housing markets continued to expand beyond the 100 mark in April bodes well for the start of the spring home buying season, and should be an encouraging sign for those who are considering a home purchase,” added Kurt Pfotenhauer, vice chair-

man of First American Title Insurance Company. The IMI is designed to track housing markets throughout the country that are showing signs of improving economic health. The index measures three sets of independent monthly data to get a mark on the top improving Metropolitan Statistical Areas. The three indicators that are analyzed are employment growth from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, house price appreciation from Freddie Mac, and singlefamily housing permit growth from the U.S. Census Bureau. National Association of Home Builders uses the latest available data from these sources to generate a list of improving markets. A metropolitan area must see improvement in all three areas for at least six months following their respective troughs before being included on the improving markets list. A complete list of all 101 metropolitan areas currently on the IMI, and separate breakouts of metros newly added to or dropped from the list in April, is available at: www. nahb.org/imi.
